Hey ladies! I just wanted to share what the Lord laid on me this Sunday. I asked the Lord a year ago how I see me vs how He sees me. The answer was a woman completely bandaged from head to toe. Mummified if you will. My perception obviously was no where near how He saw me. This weekend’s sermon was about walking him in the authority that God has granted each of us. But how can I do that if all I see is a shadow of myself? If I’m healed walking around as if I’m injured. If I’m whole, walking around as if I’m damaged. How can I grab hold of all God has for me if I keep trying to bring the bonds of pain, mistrust, betrayal, and fear with me?
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” – Isaiah 4 3:19 NIV
I was broken before the Lord when I finally decided to submit the stronghold of my past pains to him. I declared to my Father that I was taking the bandages off and walking in my purpose and destiny.
“Arise, for it is your task… Be strong and do it. ” -Ezra 10:4 ESV
Could it be my lovely sisters that many of us are on the brink of destiny, of our calling, of Godly relationships but we are spiritually and mentally allowing strongholds to delay what is rightfully ours?? That it is more comfortable to carry the pain of the past than to divide into the unknown which will unlock our future. Be brave in this season. YOU ARE WORTH IT! Trust God beyond the comfort of what you “know” and boldly walk in your truth. Not just in what you are meant to do, but who you truly are. The person under the fear, under the defensiveness, under the rejection and loss. And watch God do a new thing in you and through you! ❤️
